Lemon Bar Peeps®

Rating: 3.5 stars 4
I love the idea of Peeps®, but I am not a big fan of marshmallow. So as lemon bars are also sunny yellow, and way more delicious, I thought it only natural that a lemon bar Peep® should exist.

Southern-Style Baked Banana Pudding

Rating: 4.5 stars 49
If you like banana cream pie, you'll absolutely love baked banana pudding. Not only is there no pie crust to mess with, but I think the vanilla wafer cookies pair even more perfectly with the fruit and custardy pudding. We want the bananas to match the texture of the custard-soaked cookies, so make sure you buy them a week beforehand. Other than that, not much can go wrong with this simple Southern classic.
